We facilitate this process four ways:
It's one thing to know something in our heads and it's another to know with our hearts. All issues of life flow from the heart--our hearts inform all we do. At Behold Him, we facilitate spirit led experiences that activate our hearts through the vehicles of art and prayer to move truth from our intellect to our hearts transforming our everyday lives.
Our Jesus + Art Experiences, Heart Intensives, and one-on-one Prayer Counseling inspire us to see Jesus rightly as we invite the Holy Spirit to go where no human can; and He brings healing to our hearts, freeing us to live His abundant life. Seeing Jesus rightly is a discovery of Beauty that requires a nurturing of that Beauty and brings a fullness of life that makes His beauty widely known!
Hosted at our ministry house, a location of your choice, or online, these experiences are formatted as either one day events or 6-8 weekly meetings including Biblical teaching by Alyssa (based on her books "Joined to Jesus" or "The Beautiful Exchange" or the course "Cultivating Quiet"), art making, and journaling. Art supplies, course books, Biblical teaching, and art tutorials and demonstrations are available for whichever format you choose. No artistic experience needed!
Carve out intentional time to pursue freedom and wholeness during this 2 day getaway where food and lodging are covered. Healing prayers and teaching on generational curses, soul ties, inner lies, negative expectations and decisions, word curses, trauma, and deliverance, combined with process art are woven into this intensive. You will leave having experienced a healing prayer model that you can take home and incorporate into your spiritual disciplines along with a visual record of what God did in your heart.
When our heart is wounded, we can know in our head what is right or rationalize our experiences, but our wounds continue to fester at a heart level informing our daily lives. In prayer counseling, we partner with the Lord to guide us to the root of our pain to experience wholeness and healing when we exchange our doubt, fear, and unbelief for God's truth of faith, hope, and love.
These experiences gave me a richer view of God and His beauty. I learned to create out of worship, dig deeper into the Word and even how to express suffering through art. With meaningful guidance, I learned a new way to spend time with our Heavenly Father.
I was craving an artistic outlet, and I came away with that plus a greater hunger to dive into the Word. I have been learning more about myself, my walk with God, and how to creatively represent what God is revealing to me.
This study was more than I expected. Yup, I’m learning fun art techniques. But I’m also learning how God sees me, and that’s simply life changing...
This experience brought color to my grey.
Art + Jesus experiences implement journaling and/or art making with Biblical study to activate heart-transformation. "Joined to Jesus" explores identity and destiny as we are God's masterpieces and poetry. "The Beautiful Exchange" activates the incredible exchanges God has for us. "Cultivating Quiet" focuses on creative prayer and stillness.
One-on-one sessions occur over zoom or in person where your counselor will help you to hear the Holy Spirit and see the Lord to help work through heart issues that hinder you from God's best. Find healing through practically applying the work of the cross and resurrection life of Jesus to your heart.
This overnight intensive is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in creativity and the presence of Jesus by discovering Beauty through art journaling, prayer, Biblical study, conversation, writing, and worship. We will explore the depths of our hearts and surrender to His healing work so we can fully and wholly live as creative beings made to worship our Creative God.
